Hi Sharon, welcome!
Thanks for the kind words!
I never got to see what the auction ended at. My friend moved and is literally getting rid of everything, she has so much nice stuff... she has been a lifelong jewelry collector, and even had her own business for years selling vintage jewelry. Her eBay ID is imabarbedoll, check it from time to time, as she is always listing.
You sell on Ruby Lane? Cool! I shop that site a lot :-)
